When thinking of a city like Charleston or New Orleans, it’s easy to connect that city with its historic architecture. Tales are told about the lives and activities that once were touched by buildings in those communities. Part of those narratives often go back to how preservation efforts fostered protection. A community’s efforts to respect its architectural legacy can not only add economic benefit to a region but more importantly help provide an important connection to the area’s history and its people.

Sid has always been a working advocate for our neighborhoods in Peoria.  Even before he was on Council, he was not about just saying he cared, he'd roll up his sleeves and get involved.  This is just the type of work ethic we need on the Council.
